TIME TO READ - THE LUCKIEST MAN Suggested Reading Extensive reading is one of the most effective ways to improve your English. This time we encourage you to read Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne, born in Nantes, France in 1828. Some people call Verne the Father of Science Fiction and see him as a “prophet” of scientific progress because many of his books deal with forms of technology—the submarine, space travel, terrestrial flight and deep-sea exploration— that were fantastic for his day. Use the Internet to access the suggested reading. Have fun! http://www.ibiblio.org/julesverne/books/20t_with_5th_reprint_revisions.pdf Have fun finding the following words!
